Electromagnetic Fields and Cancer



STUDY CITES INCIDENCE OF CANCER NEAR POWER LINES


ALBANY, July 8— A study issued today by the New York State Health Department says that children with leukemia or brain cancer are more likely than healthy children to be living in homes where the exposure to the magnetic fields generated by electric power lines is high.
In addition to the higher incidence of childhood cancer, the study suggests that exposure to a magnetic field causes behavorial changes in laboratory animals.
Researchers were quick to note that they could not explain the higher incidence of cancer and that the study did not establish a direct cause-and-effect link. Other variables not measured by the study could be factors in the development of cancer, for which the incidence among children is 1 in 10,000 each year.
''It is not obvious what a mechanism of inducing cancer might be,'' said Dr. David Carpenter, who oversaw the study. ''That remains a major problem.'' 'Reason for Concern'
The study's findings ''should not be cause for panic,'' said Dr. Carpenter, dean of the School of Public Health Sciences at the State University of New York at Albany. But he added that the conclusions ''indicate some real reason for concern.''
He said the study should prompt further research on the health effects of electromagnetic fields and could lead to standards for human exposure. Only in the Soviet Union, according to the study, do such standards exist.
The study combines the findings of 16 new research projects on the health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields. It is a result of a decision by the State Public Service Commission, which ruled in 1978 that two high-voltage transmission lines could be built in upstate New York if a research program were established to study the associated health risks.
While the study was prompted by concern about the electric fields produced by high-voltage wires, greater risks of childhood cancer were found to be associated with the magnetic fields produced by wires carrying high currents. No correlation was found among adults.
High-voltage wires are used for transmitting electricity over long distances through rural areas. Ordinary transmission wires found in residential neighborhoods may carry high currents if they are thick enough and close to power substations.
A total of $5 million was contributed for the research program, called the New York State Powerlines Project, by the New York State Power Authority and the state's seven investor-owned utilities. These include Consolidated Edison and the Long Island Lighting Company.
Research contracts were awarded by an advisory panel made up of experts in a variety of fields, including biochemistry, genetics, neurology and engineering. The panel screened applicants not only for their scientific expertise, but also for their lack of financial or professional conflicts of interest.
Dr. Carpenter said many of the scientists who participated in the project were surprised by the results. He said they had expected to find no correlation between exposure to electromagnetic fields and adverse health effects.
The most serious concern raised by the study comes from a research project suggesting that 10 to 15 percent of all childhood cancer cases might be attributable to magnetic fields.
The project, conducted in Denver, replicated an earlier study in that city that also found a correlation between the incidence of childhood cancer and the proximity of homes to the low-frequency magnetic fields produced by power lines. The new study shows the incidence of childhood cancer to be highest in homes closest to transmission wires designed to carry extremely high currents.
Household appliances also generate magnetic fields, but researchers found little correlation between the presence of appliances and the incidence of cancer.
Leonard Sagan, manager of the Radiation Sciences Program at the Electric Power Research Institute, said he had seen a copy of the Denver study in its preliminary form, but would not comment on it.

Magnetism in the Unvaccinated: The 'Magneto'-Spike Protein and Magnetogenetics.

Reports of covid19 unvaccinated people in close contact with the vaccinated people becoming 'magnetized' has been puzzling lot of independent researchers, doctors and scientists. We know that the vaccinated people shed spike proteins . But Fe3O4 based Nanoparticles do not shed, neither do they replicate and infect/transmit other people, like the spike proteins do. These Nanoparticles get deposited into brain and neural tissue as we discussed earlier . Looking at this strange phenomenon, it appears like something 'magnetic' is  Replicating - Some vaccinated people are having their whole body 'magnetized' starting from the injection site. And Transmitting : from the vaccinated people to unvaccinated people who are in close contact with them. It looks like something 'Magnetic' is being added to the Covid19 viral Spike Protein genome, which is being injected through the DNA Vector and mRNA experimental Covid19 vaccines. What if I tell you, that may be very m

The unvaccinated need not worry about the Covid-19 variants.

  Nobody needs to worry about these variants : Dr. Mark McDonald.   First of all lets shrug off the burden the main stream media has been dumping on our shoulders. The unvaccinated do not cause mutations or variants. The vaccinated people create variants. Not me, Nobel Laureate Scientist Luc Montagneir and many other scientists and doctors have said that. Vaccinations cause variants.  Curve of vaccination is followed by curve of deaths: Luc Montagneir.  Reports are coming in from Britain and Israel (among the highest vaccinated countries in the world) that vaccinated people are suffering more Deaths and Hospitalizations with 'new variants' than the unvaccinated.

Red: Unvaccinated.  Remember the SAGE report  had predicted that majority of casualties of 'third wave' (Deaths and Hospitalizations) would be amongst the vaccinated people.  Also we have seen D

Deaths Occurring After Experimental Covid19 Vaccine Shots: A Small List.

 In the previous post on covid19 vaccine safety issue, I had emphasized how the deaths after vaccines may not be co-incidental but might have something to do with the experimental vaccines. Recently South Indian actor and comedian, Mr, Vivek had taken covid19 vaccine and urged everyone to take the vaccine. After taking the vaccine he went on to say " The vaccine is  the only thing that can save you. If you ask me if people who get vaccinated don't get Covid19, its not like that. Even if Covid19 hits you, there wont be death." The next day Mr. Vivek died of cardiac arrest causing a major panic among the people of Tamil Nadu. Many villagers refused to take vaccine . In fact people in India, especially the rural population are so scared of the experimental vaccines that in the state of UP, 200 villagers jumped into the river to avoid vaccinations . VAERS data: Not so safe after all.  Immediately the media swung into action and started discrediting anyone who questions the
